Well maintained B&B Great breakfast with a breath taking view on the False Bay Warm welcome by the hosts Good information of where to go and what to do in the area provided by the hosts Vannessa and Peter. Good place to stay for German and English speaking visitors because both hosts are bi-lingual. We would come back!

This was a lovely guest house that managed to accommodate us with ease. The staff were friendly and the rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. With those views, I cannot imagine us staying at another place the next time we come for business. If only I could have breakfast on that patio every morning... Thank you Vanessa for a memorable...

Vanessa and Peter - the owners - are the most welcoming hosts and nothing is too much for them. The breakfast is beautifully presented and we enjoyed it on the terrace with an... More

Also a bit of a treat for both of us as we are normally accompanied by our 13 year old son. The accommodation was fully equipped, neat and clean and the breakfast was delicious.
